Creation Station: Himalayan Mandalas


Found throughout Himalayan Asia, mandalas are symbols that represent the universe. Their intricate patterns are beautiful and have strong meanings in Buddhist and Hindu traditions. Often, mandalas are either made of colored sand or of painting on silk, known as thangkas.

Our activity is inspired by intricate designs from Asia, and include explanation on the meaning of certain colors and placement of messages within mandalas. The project supplies include simple paper and coloring tools, not sand or rice.

Join us for our last family project of the summer and create your own mandala, learn about its importance, and explore your artistic talents. Recommended for ages 5 and older.



Drop-in Mandala Creation: 1:00 – 3:00 pm
The Mouse and the Buddha Storytelling: 1:00 and 2:00 pm
